Construction Accident Lawyers
Personal Injury Claims and Construction Accidents
In most cases, people injured in work-related accidents have no other legal option than to apply for workers’ compensation benefits. They cannot sue their employer. They cannot sue their coworkers. And while workers’ compensation makes sense for a number of reasons, it does not fully compensate injured workers for all of their accident-related costs.
Construction accident victims, and people who work in industrial or manufacturing occupations, may be able to recover full compensation in a personal injury lawsuit — provided that their accident was caused by defective equipment or by the negligence of someone other than their own employer or a coworker.
